והשב את העבודה לדביר ביתך
AND RESTORE THE SERVICE TO THE SANCTUARY OF YOUR HOUSE

By virtue of our sincere tefillos and our devoted service, we ask Hashem to please restore the Avodah in the Beis Hamikdash as well, through which we will earn the ultimate ‘favor’ of Hashem and the Shechinah will once again rest upon Yisroel.

We say ‘לדביר ביתך’, for the ‘D’vir’ was the chief place of the Shechinah, as there was placed the Aron Habris as well as the Menorah with its ner tamid, “a testimony to all that the Shechinah rests in Yisroel” (Shabbos 22b). And it is ‘ביתך’, ‘Your house’, Your permanent dwelling, “For Hashem chose Tzion” (Tehillim 132 13), and never will He dwell in any other place at all.
